        • The non-consensus is mainly on whether it's reasonable to forbid it or just say it's bad. If this is a copyvio, what you should do is put a copyvio on it. If it succeeds, it's deleted, if not, then not. Either way, this FP nomination can proceed and doesn't have to do anything with that. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 20:12, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Mir war die Integration des sandbedeckten Gebäudes in die umliegenden Sanddünen wichtig. Die Mauer hätte die Dünenlandschaft zerschnitten.

The colourspace is AdobeRGB, which is unsuitable for Commons/Wikipedia. Most people will be seeing the wrong colours -- though mainly at the red end rather than sky). Colin (talk) 21:00, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info ✓ Done Cropped at the right, the stooping man has gone. I'll not change the profile to SRGB: I tested it, it spoils the colours. --A.Savin 21:31, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I suggest that if you see a significant difference between sRGB and AdobeRGB then you computer isn't set up correctly. Provided you shot in raw, both sRGB and AdobeRGB JPGs should display virtually identically in a decent image viewer like Photoshop. Google the issue and you'll see nobody recommends AdobeRGB for internet JPGs. Fine for sending a JPG to a print lab. But nothing else. Colin (talk) 21:55, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

    Short: Yes. Long: There is a proposed guideline at Commons:Watermarks, and it widly practiced on Commons, since the licence authorize it (Derivative works.). Pleclown (talk) 10:38, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
The Commons:Deletion requests/Template:CC-Dont-Remove Watermark discussion is relevant to some degree, though the attribution text on the image description page is not equivalent to the attribution on the photo itself. Colin (talk) 11:15, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
I think the crop made for a better pic, but if the author wants this as his form of attribution then it would violate the license terms to remove it. Saffron Blaze (talk) 14:43, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
No, it would not. This is a misunderstanding that results from reading only the license deed ("in the manner specified by the author or licensor), not the actual license. CC-BY-2.0, which this is released under, says in section 4b that [s]uch credit may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided, however, that in the case of a Derivative Work or Collective Work, at a minimum such credit will appear where any other comparable authorship credit appears and in a manner at least as prominent as such other comparable authorship credit. Disclaimer, I'm not a lawyer. darkweasel94 15:38, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Indeed (pun intended), but it is easy to see where the confusion comes in. Hopefully in the next iteration of the CC license they tidy up that wording on the deed. Saffron Blaze (talk) 15:52, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Every Wikimedian is bounded by the agreement "You agree that a hyperlink or URL is sufficient attribution under the Creative Commons license". I discussed this matter with a Creative Commons staff, and the reply was it is enough for any CC license irrespective of whether the use is in WMF projects or not.
JKadavoor Jee 16:30, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
I think most of us are happy to have the attribution moved, though the wording shouldn't change like it has here, and remember that in the case of Flickr transfers, the author bound to any Wikimedia terms of use contract at all. Colin (talk) 19:11, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
I think you mean to say "in the case of Flickr transfers, the author is not bound to any Wikimedia terms of use contract at all." That was the reason behind my discussion with them. If the answer was different, we can't use third party uploads in articles or galleries as we don't use attributions on those pages. So I think that answer is very important.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose until criteria for this sort of thing are defined. The guidelines for featured video were clearly written for documentary-style videos of a subject, whereas here the pop video is the subject. As such, the above checklist is pointless. Our guidelines for "Artworks" would appear more suitable but this is not a reproduction, rather it is the artwork. The work itself is not notable. While it may be an example of its genre, I'm struggling to see what distinguishes it in any way to make it a "featured" example of its kind. The ev is made more limited by its sexual content, which limits where it could be realistically used [This isn't a comment against hosting such content -- just that it obviously limits its value compared to some other video of the band playing]. The world is full of non-notable professional music videos -- this one's main defining feature seems to be its free licence -- and I don't think being "professional" is a sufficient condition for FP - . Colin (talk) 18:29, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
    • This isn't a non-notable music video, but a music video by a notable Ukrainian band (uk:Semargl). Also, we don't really deal with educational value here on Commons in such things, that is more a Wikipedia notion, what we deal with more is the technical aspects of the images/video. Also, sexual content isn't relevant in this regard either. The "checklist" by Michal Rosa above has merit. russavia (talk) 03:57, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
      • Very few pop videos from any band are notable in themselves (to the extent, say, they could have a WP article in their native language). I highly doubt this one qualifies. So let's not claim it itself is notable. The band may well be notable, but that's another matter. The point, when comparing the "Artworks" criteria, is it fails "Notable in its own right" -- the subject isn't a great work of art that the world values and admires and comments on. The second criteria "Of high artistic merit: Works which, while not particularly well known, are none the less wonderful examples of their particular type or school of art." Again, I don't think there is anything special about this video that qualifies it on that condition. And the third possibility is "Of high historic merit" seems also unlikely. And it isn't an illustration so the last criterion doesn't apply.
      • The "ev" is an absolutely requirement on Wikipedia but is still a quality to be judged on Commons (and frequently is) -- we are a repository of educational material after all. We've rejected self-made artistic photographs and drawings before because of their limited ev even though they might do well on Flickr. The FP criteria require the picture to be "valuable" and in that sense it is its value to use as educational material. This video can be used on the band's article would be hard to use elsewhere. If it weren't so sexual it would have more value as it could illustrate music genre articles too. So I do feel that its content limits its value to the project and that counts against it. It is professionally made, though the studio setup is low budget.
      • But more importantly, we have the fundamental difference here between reviewing a great reproduction of a subject and the subject itself. We simply haven't agreed a set of criteria for judging the latter, nor have we even agreed that such works fit into the FP process. What if a band were to release all their videos and songs with a free licence. Would we "feature" all of them automatically because they were professionally made? What if people released adverts under a free licence? On en-wp we had a current movie poster once at FP (the real digital poster, not some scan) and iirc there were copyright doubts about it and a unease we were publishing promotional material. I think the FP process needs to discuss whether such material is featurable and what criteria we should set -- merely being one of so few donations so far doesn't really cut it imo. Colin (talk) 09:43, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Colin. Further, unlike COM:POTD; COM:MOTD doesn’t require a "Featured video" as a pre requirement. So you can post it at any empty slot available there without nominating here. We rarely feature some Featured videos ; which are heavily used in WMF projectsto document something. JKadavoor Jee 00:06, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
    • This isn't being nominated so it can appear on the front page of Commons, it is being nominated because it is a high quality video, and meets requirements as they stand right now. Also, it is in use at uk:Semargl, and it simply requires that article to be translated into other languages and it would likely see use in those articles too. russavia (talk) 03:57, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
      • High quality is only a pre requirement (QI) and sometimes neglected if override by other exceptional merits. Since this is an art work, it should be “Notable in its own right”, “Of high artistic merit”, “Of high historic merit” or “Of high illustrative merit” to qualifies an FP. This is definitely a QI; but QIC accepts only works of Wikimedians now. The only notability as “the subjects of a controversy” I see here is its sexual content; but that is very common in pop videos.

IMO the tree leaves give it a certain charm and for the road furniture I had tried at maximum to integrate its in the composition and I think the result is not so bad with the elements of the place. But I don't understand : this bridge is not pretty enough?!? -- Christian Ferrer (talk) 11:14, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
I can certainly see you tried hard with composition -- it isn't random. The path through the bridge, with the fence leading the eye, is a nice device, but the shadows on the path and past the bridge don't help the eye to follow or give any reward for looking through the arch. Perhaps if the sandy path was in full sunlight, it would lead the eye better. Only a third of the bridge is in light or clear of trees. Colin (talk) 12:13, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

At the same time, it's ok technically and the wow factor is also there. darkweasel94 10:43, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • What Suncalc doesn't show you is that to my right/rear is Paisley Town Hall. A huge building that would cast most of the grounds and abbey into shadow for the date/time you suggest. For a 3d object, there are various lighting directions that put some faces into light and some into shadow. Lighting from behind the camera might have fewest faces in shadow (assuming no obstacles like a town hall) but will also be completely flat, so many of the carved details will be far less clear. I have taken some pictures further round, which are in full light, but obviously are of a different view. Will try to upload them this week. Ideally, I'd also want to be further back to minimise the wide-angle effect, but you can see that the two street lamps would then obscure the abbey when taken at ground level. What I need is a big crane.... Colin (talk) 11:36, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment -- Why does the right facade look like it's tilting downwards?Fotoriety (talk) 00:07, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
  1. Because it is. Paisley's own "leaning tower of Pisa" the western gable leans disconcertingly and is quite wonky. See this frame that made up the above picture, taken with the camera level and is unadjusted. See also this shot from straight-on, showing how it leans to the side too. And there's this Geograph photo take side-on.
  2. The lamp-post leans the other way. Damn that lamp post.
  3. The wide angle of view doesn't help. A wide angle rectilinear view (whether from lens or projection) "corrects" x/y-axis vertical and horizontal perspective "distortion" but doesn't adjust perspective in the z-axis (depth). The effect causes the near corner to look more dominant than reality and the far corners to recede more than reality. For an extreme example, see St Pancras Station. The only solution is to get further back, but that has its own problems with lamp posts and statues and trees obscuring the subject. This is the furthest I can get, for this viewpoint, while still getting an unobstructed view.
  4. Most views of the abbey have a degree of vertical perspective "distortion" -- the verticals lean inwards -- which nicely masks the issue. -- Colin (talk) 07:20, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

On the pro site: The quality is really good, the stitch (I guess) quite complex (did you use a nodal point adapter?), the level of detail is (not surprisingly) VERY good with 125 MP. Contra: The photo looks not really appealing in thumbnail size, the lightning is unfortunate (more than a half of the building is in shadow). If it would be only 16 MP I had definitely voted with contra. But all in all your great work should be honored and the high level of detail is very useful for educational usage. --Tuxyso (talk) 10:10, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Tuxyso. I think this subject benefits from the detail as there are so many features to explore. For example, at the nearest corner of the tower is a carved face with hair like the Wella logo, which wouldn't even register as a dot on a normal photo. I agree the lighting isn't optimal but I don't live there so can't keep visiting at any date/time, and one can't guarantee the weather on the west-coast of Scotland. Pictures on a rainy overcast day might be useful but (understandably) people don't tend to go wow then. Perhaps next year I'll be luckier, or perhaps it will be covered in scaffolding...
I took the picture by hand. Perhaps Santa will get me a panoramic head, though then I have to use a tripod which isn't always easy in a town centre. There weren't many stitching errors to fix - just those two lamp-posts had parallax problems which were fairly easy to fix by hand blending layers. I use Smartblend with Hugin, which I find does a miraculous job at choosing where to make a hidden seam between the frames.
I've uploaded another different view: File:Paisley Abbey from the west.jpg. Only 64 MP but 180 degree view and a Panini projection that worked really well imo. I may nominate that one, but have some gargoyles to accompany it that I want to upload first -- one of which is an Alien. And I have yet more views from the opposite side, but need to work on them first. -- Colin (talk) 10:51, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Agree the garden is over-exposed and if the raw is available I would suggest experimenting with locally reducing it there. One counter-argument might be that if one's eyes are adjusted to the dark room, then the outside will appear over-bright, though only for a short while till they adjust. Colin (talk) 08:31, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

    There is more space ahead of the aircraft than behind it and the pilot is horizontally positioned around the golden ratio. Vertically, I don't see a good opportunity for an alternative composition. What I tried to do is find a balance between good composition and an aircraft that doesn't disappear in the frame. I agree that a different solution could also work, so I tried to give an alternative below, using an off-center composition and a wider aspect ratio to still keep the empty space at an acceptable level. I'll happily take advice on how to further improve on this. — Julian H.✈ (talk/files) 15:34, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Am actually flattered that you might think it could be a copyvio!

You're welcome, I expect it's actually better than the sources.

But as I said, I haven't had time to compare it to the sources yet. --99of9 (talk) 21:53, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

The stones are part of the wall, and to be a fortress from the Iron Age in Scandinavia, well preserved.

      • I agree that it's difficult to see, so I don't think it has to be absolutely precise. It's just relatively far off right now. Two points of reference that work: a) The hills in the left top background should be close to horizontal. b) The trees should, in average, be vertical (which is relatively difficult to measure).

    • Sorry, but I cannot really follow your arguments. Your formulation "Very poor lightning" does imho not carefully considering the photo. BTW: There are some shadows (look at the Half Dome). The main motive here is the overall Yosemite formation (moutains + valley). Light at midday is not "very bad" because the complete valley AND the montains are lightened without extreme shadows. My main purpose here was do to a very detailed documentary image of the valley and surronding mountains and for that case midday is for me the better time of day than the more atmospheric light in the morning or in the evening. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:42, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Diliff has created some lovely pictures of this with sunset lighting (File:Glacier Point at Sunset, Yosemite NP, CA, US - Diliff.jpg and File:Half Dome from Glacier Point, Yosemite NP - Diliff.jpg). However those capture a different area (though still have the Half Dome and there are some nice waterfalls to the right of the Half Dome that would have been good to include). Our purpose on this project is educational material, not to create postcards or panoramic posters to sell from the tourist shop. While lovely lighting and picture-postcard images are fantastic to have and rightly featured, we should also support those attempting to provide "detailed documentary images" (as Tuxyso puts it) where the lighting supports detailed study rather than being merely attractive. The Internet is full of "downsized for web" highly processed picture-postcard images with watermarks and restrictions that look fantastic but don't have great educational use because you can't study any details and you can't republish them for free.
However, I'm reluctant to support for now because I think the image is significantly titled in the area of the Half Dome and below. Compare Diliff's pictures. The trees are a giveaway. I think it is important for such geologically interesting formations, to get it straighter than this. Colin (talk) 09:13, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your detailled assesment. What do the others think about the perspective? Visually I see no significant tilt. But for sure it was aligned but Hugin and you have no real verticals here for orientation. If there a really perspective problems I guess I have to manually influence the stitching process. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:22, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
I took a crop of the right-hand side and opened it in Irfanview. Then took Diliff's Half Dome picture and reduced it 80% in size. Yours and his can then be aligned up to be surprisingly similar apart from the lighting. Yours is a little fatter horizontally, but that's to be expected from projection changes. Using the selection rubber-band rectangle tool, I drew a vertical from the pointed tip of the Half Dome down the a light patch in the rocks far below. Then rotated yours -4.5 degrees to get it the same. The mountain range on the far right still doesn't come up as high as Diliff's, requiring another degree perhaps, but then the dome is rotated too far. Another comparison is looking at the craggy peak to the left of the dome compared to the distant range to the right. In Diliff's these are almost level, whereas in yours the right is far below. However, to show how hard this is, I can compare Diliff's half dome with his wider pano. To do this, reduce the half dome by 45% instead. You will then see his wider pano is significantly tilted anti-clockwise , making the right hand mountain range much higher than the left.
Overall your pano does show the right hand mountain range curving downwards where perhaps it should be closer level with the left. A 4.5 degree tilt is quite a lot, assuming Diliff's half dome is correct. Colin (talk)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Very nice. I disagree about the poor lighting statement. When viewed at full size, the walls have nice texture and relief, and there are walls in many different directions, so it's difficult to have a perfect hour to frame it all, probably not so difficult for a "detail" shot, e.g. the Dome only. I'm not sure about the scale (how high the walls are would be very useful in the description) but there must be some climbers in it, I couldn't find any, they must be two or three pixels. --Kadellar (talk) 12:21, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
    • You are right. I have seen them with field glasses and also made a short video sequence where you can see them moving.
      @Colin: I am unsure about the right perspective. Later I will nominate an alternative with a manually modified projection where I tried to adress your comments. But the stitiching is very time intensive. --Tuxyso (talk) 12:32, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
      • Both are very good but I'll support only the alternative, ok? --Kadellar (talk) 12:01, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

  • I don't think it is much good either. Blown sky and sloping verticals. This is Commons, not Wikipedia. They can illustrate the article with an over-processed HDR image if they want. There are lots of buildings where we are glad even to have only "satisfactory" images, never mind FP. Someone should send Diliff to Malaysia for a holiday :-) Colin (talk) 14:34, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
  • The "they" I was referring to was the article editors, who have had that picture in the article for years. I'm glad it didn't make en:FP. Colin (talk) 15:26, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is it an HDR or a single shot? Commented by Tuxyso Poco2 18:14, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
    Single shot, as usual, when I propose my first HDR -if I do so- I will let you all know about the premiere, Poco2 18:14, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
    Sorry, I've asked you again and again and have again forgotten it :) Such photos from single shots are unusual for me because my camera has not such a dynamic range. --Tuxyso (talk) 23:47, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The uneven surface of the clouds and the degree to which some of them are blown is very distracting (Not that this couldn't be an FP in clearer weather with the sun somewhere else). Daniel Case (talk) 06:02, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
    Well, if you mean "bright" when saying "blown", I agree, but they are not overexposed. And, yes, as Christian says, that's Poland, a nice country with tricky weather (seen as Spaniard) :) Poco2 08:47, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
It's still a distracting surface, much more so than it would be if it were uniformly overcast. We cannot blame the weather for the failings of our photos anymore than Rafael Viñoly can blame the high sun for the death-ray problem at 20 Fenchurch Street.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The sky cannot be blue all the time, especially in Poland, a good photographer also take photos when the weather is bad -- Christian Ferrer Talk 07:43, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose After certain considations I am not fully convinced of this photo. My question if this is an HDR aroused because it looks as if you've photographed against the light. The consequence is that the sky is quite bright and, as Daniel stated, somehow distracting. All buildings are in unfortunate shadow. This photo could have been better at a different time of the day. BTW: Please add geocoordinates. --Tuxyso (talk) 08:10, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Christian, I'm sorry but I don't see any wow in this landscape. Besides, due to the long distance to the villages, there's a lot of distortion caused by air (unsharpness, not perspective distortion), windows and edges of buildings look slightly curved. --Kadellar (talk) 12:06, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Per above. With all those horizontal lines cut off, the image is missing context. It would need to be wide enough to show the whole shore, if that's interesting enough. As it is it's the sort of image you see all over Flickr. Daniel Case (talk) 14:21, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
    • Yes, you're right, in my big despair, this day, I had forgotten the hood of this lens and I could not put the wide angle, but however I like this image. --Christian Ferrer (talk) 16:52, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
